Chicago, Illinois- March 23, 2021– Sarah Dayan Mueller is proud to debut her second novel, Home in a Hundred Places. Inspired by the true story of her late father, this novel debuted as the #8 new release on Amazon’s Jewish Historical Fiction category and debuted in the top 100 bestsellers in the same category.
Raymond Blanco never intended on leading a life of many roles, but after more than 90 years of experiences, he has a hard time remembering many of them. Raised in a Sephardic family in Egypt during the height of a growing resistance against Jews, Raymond maneuvers his way through childhood and into young adulthood with the guidance of his older cousin, Albert. When the two of them find themselves as key members of a Cairo based Jewish spy ring, they must both make quick decisions that will ultimately determine the course of their lives.
In the midst of split-second choices, Raymond loses contact with his cousin but spends the rest of his life trying to find him again. Unable to stay in Egypt, Raymond finds his way to New York City, where his life is marked with success, international travels, and prosperity. Although he builds a solid foundation in his newly adopted home, he can’t help but feel the unmistakable void left from his cousin’s disappearance.
Home in a Hundred Places portrays dynamic relationships rooted in adventure and loyalty but stained by years of disconnect. Over the course of nearly a century, Raymond’s life is led by deep-seated familial traditions, unconditional love, and unanswered questions. As Raymond’s life progresses, the onset of Alzheimer’s disease slowly erases his memories. Raymond struggles to hold onto a lifetime’s worth of experiences and is scared that he will one day forget Albert before ever finding him again.
